Ocean Race-2021/22: 18 teams already!
Before the start of the circumnavigation of the Ocean Race (as Volvo Ocean Race is now called), another good year and a half – the race will begin in Alicante (Spain) in October 2021. But some results can be summed up now.
The fact is that just these days the first stage of filing applications from those teams that intend to take part in the world tour is ending.
